Food and beverage companies trust Boyum Solutions to optimize their logistics inbound, internal, and outbound operations. With product quality and traceability, easy management of version control, and real-time accurate inventory data, you can better calculate your margins. Increase productivity which will ultimately lead to a higher profit margin for the company overall.
Here are some of the most common challenges we see in Food and Beverage companies.
Calculating accurate product margins is time-consuming
Working with low-profit margins means you need to manage costs tightly and include all procurement, inventory, and sales aspects to calculate the correct price.
Productivity losses due to limited optimization of resources
Recipe complexity and multi-constraint production resources such as machines and labor skills can be challenging when providing accurate delivery dates.
Difficult to manage multiple versions of the same product
Increasing recipe complexity, especially when new ingredients keep entering the market, means you must continuously deal with recipe changes and the hassle that comes with it.
Full traceability based on batch and serial numbers, and GS1 standards
Batch management has been standard in food manufacturing and logistics for long. Another dimension is opening now to combine this with serial number management to enhance traceability further. The GS1-identification standards are the backbone of this.
Conditioned storage and detailed inventory management for product integrity and quality
Food products need special treatment in the receiving, storage, picking, packing, and shipping processes. Boyum food safety solutions can ensure the appropriate conditioned storage at all times and will also manage other conditions such as best-before-dates and shelf life.
Catchweight management – management of products with variable weights
As many food products come from livestock, vegetables, or fruits, they may vary in weight. Therefore, it is crucial to capture the quantity of these food products in units and weight to ensure their correct valuation in purchasing and sales.
